I can't remember why we decided to make a LEGO horror movie, but some time in 1999 myself, (Tim Drage), and my friend and partner in brickfilm crime Tony Mines, did. I think we were inspired mainly by the aquisition of a LEGO skeleton figure and by the increasing levels of violence and evil in the supposedly war-toy-free LEGO range. So we customised some minifigs, built a rudimentary graveyard from plasticine and card, and using my trusty Super-8 Cine camera and some lovely monochrome stock I had recently purchased, began filming indiscriminitely. We animated heedless of such niceties as continuity, making sense or getting the shots in focus. There was some vague semblance of a plot in which explorers discover an ancient thingy which makes the dead rise from their graves, followed by random violence and intertextual references. It's quite a broad and vague parody encompassing horror genres including silent movies, 60's-70's indie horror, 80's gore, and 90's stupididy.
We shot various footage intermittently whenever we got round to it, and in August 2000 we finally managed to edit together something loosely resembling a movie. It was one of the first few brickfilms on the internet.
For more on the making of the film, and images, please visit www.spiteyourface.com/dead/
The AVI version of the movie is fullscreen PAL. The mov version is tiny. Realmedia and MPEG-4 are of medium size and quality.
We've since gone on to produce many far more professional and in-focus films which can be seen on our website: www.spiteyourface.com
PLEASE NOTE: Although the film ends with 'to be continued', it will almost certainly NOT be continued! So don't hold your breath, and more importantly don't pester us for a sequel.
WARNING! All of the Dead contains images of shockingly graphic and realistic, out-of-focus, extreme, stupid Lego violence and is thus unsuitable for young children or the humourless.

--tracey, penchant for zombie films of any sort...
Was just wanting to know if I could get you to give the archives the right to host online/broadcast this film. I ask so I can find out if I want to download it. As downloading is not on the above list I assume its ok to download this film?
BTW, pissoff! If you want nothing done with your films then don't post them here, its just RE-TARDed
I left no rating as I will have to wait for the archives to get permission to broadcast, then I'll watch it and tell you what I really think..

Also, the groe effects are great.
Well, I give it only 4 stars becuase the music is really bad. It sounds like someone falling over a church organ.
